New member w/o Jeep

Hi all, new to this forum but not automobile forums. I am a performance vehicle type of guy. Have been looking at a Wrangler Unlimited for awhile now. Since lurking here I have learned a lot so far about Jeeps. So far:

-Don't want to buy a Rubicon. Get the Sport S and then mod it. No reason to pay for stuff that your gonna replace anyway.
-Dont get the max tow package as there is little benefit.
-BFG is Black most of the time.
-33 seems to be the consensus for tire size.
-Alot of great people are on here and help those with questions.

I am currently stationed in Hawaii, but due to rotate back to mainland next spring. We enjoy going to the mountains in the winter for ski/snowboarding and stuff. The current SUV does well, but is not a good snow vehicle (07 Trailblazer SS 2WD). The dimensions tell me that there is just as much room in the back of the Wrangler Unlimited. We also enjoy outdoors and exploring which the Trailblazer won't really blaze any trail unless it is paved...

I will be lurking for awhile but will be buying upon returning stateside. Just getting ideas for now.

Thanks all
